Question Direct Storage Questions


Golden Member
Jan 10, 2011
1. Will Direct Storage only work on the physical drive that that Windows is installed on?
2. Will Direct Storage require the M.2 slot that uses CPU lanes to the NMVe drive?
3. Will Direct Storage work with M.2 slot that uses chipset lanes to the NVMe drive?
4. Will non-gaming disk functions benefit from Direct Storage or is it just for certain games that have to be programmed to support Direct Storage?
5. Will games that use the Vulkan and OpenGL API support Direct Storage, for example, X-Plane 11, or is it just specific to games that support DirectX?
